Tracking the ILS on a Learjet

Learjet ILS Guest

Hi Folks....
I'm a dab hand at landing a Cessna on the ILS. Tune the frequency of the airport into the NAV1, keep the localiser central, and keep the glidepath needle horizontal. I can land in thick fog...nay problemo.

I want to do it in the Learjet 45 now, and I can visually land a Learjet fine.

The digital Clock has a blue line, a green line with a moveing middle bit, a looped faint white line.

Does anyone have an explaination of exactly how to use the dial in the same way the Cessna VOR dial works?

In the Learjet, the navigation instrument is called a Horisontal Situation Indicator(HSI). It does basically the same thing as the VOR/ILS indicator in the Cessna plus some added features. 🙂,%20the%20complete.html

Thanks. From your links, I worked out that the localiser is tracked from the middle part of the green arrow, which is NAV1. Nav 2 shows a blue line, which is a directional VOR, or it can be the source of the ILS frquency if you want . The learjet is the arrow and the localiser is the middle section. If the middle section is to the left, I turn slightly left.

Thanks again.
